Bottle into snifter. Poured almost gloopy with the color of burnt motor oil and a dark, frothy head. Nice look to it. Big notes of bourbon, vanilla, chocolate, cocoa, alcohol, oak, and greatness. Nice. Taste is quite full of oak and bitter cocoa. Some spicy vanilla in there with a nice dry quality to it, especially on the finish. Good stuff. maniac (3800) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - JUL 12, 2011

Bottle. Poured a black color with a large frothy brown head that lasted with excellent lacing. Moderate to heavy roasted chocolate, wood and borubon aroma. Medium bittersweet roasted malt flavor with a medium bittersweet and small alcohol bite finish of moderate to long duration. Medium to full body with a smooth texture and flat carbonation. This is a good beer.

Ungstrup (38250) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JUN 17, 2011
Bottled. A pitch black beer with a thin brown head. The aroma has notes of bourbon, wood, roasted malt, and alcohol. The flavor is sweet with notes of roasted malt, bourbon, alcohol, and wood, leading to a dry finish where the alcohol burns in the throat. Plovmand (8597) - Grindsted, DENMARK - JUN 17, 2011

22 fl oz bottle. Pours hazy dark brown with a small tan head. Aroma is fruity, cheesy and dark malty. Dark roasted malty, rather fruity and bourbon smooth. Lingering dark malty, roasted and mild smoked to ashtray touch. Bitter, dark roasted malty and bourbon smooth finish. Papsoe (25059) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JUN 17, 2011
Bottle 65 cl. Courtesy of Doodler. Pours an opaque black with a creamy light brown head leaving laces. A little wood in the nose, but not distincly Bourbon barrels combined with sweet roast. Solid body, heavy roast, heavy licorice, spicy woody, dark fruits. Again the Bourbon doesn’t really shine through. Still a very solid Impy. Rather malt bitter finish. 170611 Pailhead (6543) - Rochester Hills, Michigan, USA - JUN 11, 2011
Bottle: The aroma consists of chocolate, fruit, coconut, vanilla, and a hint of mint. It pours a dark brown with some faint orange highlights along the outer edges of the glass. It has a creamy three finger light brown head with great retention. The flavor starts with a quick dose of choclolate and coconut. The finish has light-moderate oak, some vinous notes, alcohol (but it doesn’t come across as bourbon),burnt flavors, and a touch of mint. While I’m not getting a lot of bourbon flavors, there is some noticeable alcohol heat. Medium bodied with mild carbonation and a somewhat creamy mouthfeel. Overall, a solid Imperial Stout that tastes barrel aged, but not necessarily bourbon barrel aged.
